Lights in the sky, colorless bulbs burning bright.
I'll try to find the best star that heavens provide.
Oh, what a sight it would be if the skies were replaced with flying machines.
We'd breathe gasoline and speak from our tongues not our hearts.

Don't close your eyes.
You might miss a shooting star.
Oh, don't you know?
If you fall asleep you'll lose everything that means anything to you.
So don't you dare forget.

We gave our lives to learn how to fly on our own.
But our wings only work when we are completely alone.

Don't close your eyes.
You might miss a shooting star.
Oh, don't you know?
If you fall asleep you'll lose everything that means anything to you.
So don't you dare forget.

I spread my wings and flew over a blurring sea.
The sun kissed the moon and the sky fell into the deep.
I fell asleep, I felt myself sink and crash into the sea.
And all I could do was sleep for now.
Sleep for now.

    General Commenti like how kenny repeats "We gave our lives to learn how to fly on our own." from the first song on the cd.

    General Commenti'm also clueless about what it means. All i know is that when he says:
    "Don't close your eyes.
    You might miss a shooting star.
    Oh, don't you know?
    If you fall asleep you'll lose everything that means anything to you.
    So don't you dare forget."
    it means that we shouldn't give up. And that life will have it's ups and downs, and will through us in different directions, but we just have to stick with it and keep trying. I think it's about taking things slow when it comes to trials and challanges, and when we do have those times we just have to keep going because there are more things in life than sadness.
    "But our wings only work when we are completely alone." means that there will be times in our life when we'll be alone, but those might be the greatest times of our life when we actually learn something.


    I might be wrong though.

    Never the less, I think that every line in this song has it's own different meaning that ties up in a beautiful song. :)

    I think it's mostly about dreaming. We might try to share our dreams with others, but ultimately we are the only ones who will ever know the wonder of them.

    General CommentWatch "The Truman Show".

    I think a lot of the songs on this album have
    to do with that movie, besides the fact that
    like three or four song titles from the album
    are direct quotes from that movie.
